    She is skating at US nationals next week. Her only international competition this season was Cup of Nice and she had to qualify for nationals through regionals and sectionals. She took off most of last season due to injury.

    I really can't wait to see her skate at Nationals. As long as she does her best, she can say that at least she tried. I hope she has a performance that she can be proud of.

    I guess she's definitely retiring. I hope she stays involved with skating through medicine/training. Good luck to her in medical school!

    All I see is the title and some survey. What is the gist of the article?

    eta: I found part of it on this other site: http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_24...vent-colorados

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Rachael Flatt says she is at her best when she is really busy. The 2010 Cheyenne Mountain High School graduate knows. You can trust the 2010 Olympian on this.

    Her extracurricular commitments as a junior class president at Stanford and a Alpha Phi sorority member and challenging academic work as a pre-med student is enough to overwhelm most.

    She is excited to begin life after figure skating after about three years of battling injuries. She wants to enjoy this final season before she retires to focus on medical school.

    Part of her transition to life after figure skating is why Flatt led a public skate Thursday that drew about 110 people to Honnen Ice Arena on the Colorado College campus. It served as a fundraiser for the Memorial Hospital Foundation.

    Nice news about Rachael. She's contributed a lot to U.S. skating and will be one of those skaters like Debi Thomas and Michelle Kwan whose second act is as good as, or even better than, her first. I am thrilled to read of her future plans.

    It says "Answer this survey question to continue to the article." Pick an answer and it'll let you read it.
